I have a Samsung front loader that will not spin out clothes. It begins spin cycle detects off balance and starts over. Will not balance. I have leveled it and replaced the shocks. Still same result.

1st: does this apply to your machine?

2nt: This applies to your machine, even if it is a different brand.

3rd.  When your washer spins when empty of all cloths, does it sound like a jet engine wanting to take off?

 

If you answered "yes" to any of the above, you get to go shopping.  If all 3 answers were no, please let us know so we can be of more assistance.

 

If you answered No to all three, try putting 5 or 6 bath towels into the machine to see if you get different results.

None of those. No noises just won't balance on spin. Begins spin starts coming up to speed. Starts wobbling slows down starts again. Every once in a while spins out good.

Try putting no less than five, large (aka normal sized) bath towels, and no more than seven, in a rinse and spin load.  Does it spin out with a towel only, no detergent load?  With new shocks, a level machine, and good (no broken) bearings, it should be balanced.  What kind of floor is your machine on?  Does the floor bounce at all? Unless it is solid concrete, you can try putting two legs directly over a floor joist.    

 

There are times when our customers try to wash too small of loads.  You must also separate your clothing into like of kind by weight, aka how heavy each article is when soaked in water.  You can't wash polar synthetics with denim jeans.

Just ran spin empty. As washer was ramping up to speed it began wobbling. This is where it normally shuts off when loaded. It continued to spin and went through the entire spin cycle, but made substantial vibration the whole time
We have used this machine for over a year. No problem with loads. This problem has gotten progressible worse over the last 6 months.
I had 6 bath towels in a rinse n spin only for test after shock replacement today

If I rotate drum by hand when powered off I hear what sounds like a ball rolling around.

The cabinet of the washer wasn't rocking, right? If all 4 legs are soild on the ground, with the cabinet not moving, with an empty basket, with brand new shocks, no broken springs from above... This is slowly whittling it down to a broken spider arm or bad bearing.

Cab not rocking. All 4 legs firm on floor. Is on first floor over basement. Floor feels solid.
Shopping for washer. Any recommendation? All seem to have share of bad reviews.
